The Italian National Research Council (CNR) is the largest public research Institution in Italy, covering all scientific
disciplines and humanities. CNR is organized into 108 research institutes. Two research institutes, both based in
Pisa, will be involved in this project.
The Institute of Information Science and Technologies “A. Faedo” (ISTI) is committed to producing scientific
excellence and to playing an active role in technology transfer. The domain of competence covers Information
Science, related technologies and a wide range of applications. The activity of the Institute aims at increasing
knowledge, developing and testing new ideas and widening the application areas. ISTI is actively involved in
collaborations with the academic world and in cooperative research and development programs, both national and
international. The organization of the research work is aimed at stimulating flexibility and reactivity. The backbone
of this organization is constituted by Research Laboratories and Technology Centers.
The “Signals & Images” Lab is a Research Laboratory at ISTI working in the fields of signal acquisition and
processing, image understanding and artificial vision, pervasive and distributed computing, real-time data
collection and transmission.
The principal competencies of the SIgnals and Images Lab are:
-Computational intelligence methods
-Decision Support Systems
-Artificial Intelligence and Pattern Recognition
-GIS, Middleware Solutions, Data Aggregation, NO-SQL databases
-Pervasive and edge computing
